Lake of the Woods Fishing Report | Monday, July 22, 2019

On the south end…  Strong week of summer walleye fishing with numerous patterns in full swing.  Jigging with frozen shiners or leeches, drifting spinners with crawlers and trolling crankbaits all effective this week.  Main depths are still 29-32′.  The late summer pattern of big numbers of fish over deep mud is here.  Various reefs holding walleyes as well.  Try the top, sides and transition areas into mud.  Each day can be different. 

On the Rainy River…   Multi-species for anglers fishing the river and Four Mile Bay.  Pulling spinners and crankbaits have been effective in finding fish.  Fish river channel edges, holes and current breaks for walleyes.  Smallies found primarily around rock.  Sturgeon keep season going strong till Sep 30.

Up at the NW Angle…  Awesome walleye fishing at and around the Angle.  Spinners with crawlers, jig and minnow and trolling crankbaits all effective this week.  Reefs and adjacent to reefs over mud good places to start.  Smallies, big pike and muskies in the mix again amongst island areas.
